TwitWrit was inspired by reading a blog post by Fred Wilson about how future businesses are going to sit on top of, and leverage, existing networks. I was thinking about what I could build on top of Twitter, and I got the idea of "scraping" fully formed poems off of the surface of Twitter, word by word. I envision Twitter as a giant stream / river / network, and TwitWrit as a "skimmer" that rides the surface and extracts poetry from people's tweets. The project is still being built but above is a screenshot of a finished poem -- The Dry Salvages by T.S. Eliot. The poem took many hours to build, and it "appeared" word by word over time. This is a project by fablednet and it will be live in a few weeks.
